    Tribble's lead unclipped on a main road again! I seem to have the worst luck with leads and harnesses, I'm currently using a big chunky lead and a slip lead together but I still don't feel safe.
    I'm looking for a lead with a trigger clip at each end, so that if one unclips she's still attached. Does anyone have a decent one that's good and strong? Where did you get it from?
    Thanks! :)

    I have a leather one that I have had since Ferdie was about six months. I bought it off Ebay, from Pets Express from Cornwall ebay shop. It is called a police training lead, I think, but it was a long time ago. It also has a ring half way up so you can use it as a single ended lead as well.

    Thanks everyone, I used to use a leather one with my old guide dog which sounds a lot like the police training lead and it was very good.
    Has anyone used this one?

    I know it's more expensive but it seems stronger than the Halti, or is there not much difference?

    I only know I have had mine for four and half years and never had any trouble with it.

    I have the Halti training lead. With regard to snap leads failing this is usually because the spring inside gets stuck. I lubricate my leads monthly with WD40 to prevent failure.

    I've had one of these over 6 years now. Some of the stitching went that joins the back and front webbing together, but I just sewed it up again. The clips are still in good order and the overall condition is still good - been in daily use all that time. It was £7.20 when I bought it! Never seen the halti one so can't compare.
